Lot Essay

“Chu Teh-Chun’s painting appears to me as a mental enigma, a theater where moving shadows act without revealing their secret: the image leads to a perpetual Elsewhere which remains both elusive and irrevocably present.” - Pierre Restany, ‘The Land of Chu’, in Chu Teh-Chun, Galerie Enrico Navarra, Paris, 2000, p.9.
